Install instructions

I wrote the game directly on my Amstrad CPC 6128 Plus and also tested it on the following models: CPC6128 and 464 Plus.

You can type the listing directly on your computer or load the "High_Low.dsk" file via M4 card or Gotek drive. 

Another possibility is to load the file via emulator, I tested the file via "CPCEmuMacOs" or on the following online emulators:
